8 Steps to Effective Use Cases Presented by Linda Westfall

Webinar Abstract:  Use cases are an easy and effective technique for defining user-level requirements.  Through the addition of more detail to the use cases, they can also be used to define the product level requirements and even the design of the product.  This presentation defines an eight-step process for creating and documenting effective use cases.  A real world example is utilized throughout this presentation to illustrate each of the eight steps in an interactive exercise with the attendees. Topics covered during this webinar include:
